Floyd Mayweather is scheduled to return to the ring in about 24 hours to fight Logan Paul in an exhibition match at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
Mayweather is widely expected to win the fight, despite Paul’s huge advantages in height, reach, and weight.
The rules of their fight, though, make it appear that both Mayweather and Paul will come out on top. According to ESPN, there will be no declared victor.
There will be two judges instead of the usual three, however knockouts are still allowed. Also, the “three knockout rule” applies if a participant is knocked down three times.
This means that the fight will be stopped instantly if Mayweather or Paul scores three knockdowns in the same round.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Logan Paul Will Square off in an Special Exhibition
At Miami, Florida’s Hard Rock Stadium on June 6, an exhibition contest between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Logan Paul has been scheduled.
In the exhibition, one of the best boxers of this generation will face off against a viral internet star with a perfect professional record.
Due to their significant differences in ability, experience, and physique, the Florida Boxing Commission has mandated that the fight be held under a unique set of rules.
Akin to the demonstration contest between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. in November of last year, this match will not be recognised as a legitimate fight.
Mayweather’s record will stay at 50-0 regardless of the outcome, while Paul will remain at 0-1 in his professional career.
Following his first exhibition fight on December 31, 2018, this will be Mayweather’s second.
Mayweather won a three-round kickboxing bout by knocking out Tenshin Nasukawa in the opening round.
On June 6, Mayweather and Paul will fight at Miami, Florida’s Hard Rock Stadium. We knew it was an exhibition match and that each round would last three minutes.
